I told him that he was defying the odds. Lol!
What's going on here?
Very interesting

This is what is going on:
1. The signal report is only a computer simulation that is often wrong with 2Edge signals
2. Seasonal Tropospheric Propagation in the Fall can enhance weak signals
3. The coordinates you gave me are on the west side of the road and down a hill. That might not be the actual location of the antenna.

Enjoy it while you got it
